No Barriers Fundraiser Climb – Kelso Ridge

Fall in the Rockies is a great time to get out and enjoy the last warm sunny days of Indian summer. Last weekend, we enjoyed a great day of climbing with my longtime climbing partner Jeff Evans, my colleague Skyler Williams, and new friends Nick Hemmert, Annette Jewell, and Victoria Jewell.

Expedition Possible!

Mark Burnett isn't the only one creating incredible adventures. This past Labor Day, we invited friends to our place near Rollinsville, Colorado for a mini-expedition. Called Expedition Possible, twenty-four teams competed for the coveted prize: a picture of a Ford Explorer. The Explorer looked very much like the one presented to the Gypsies after their big win. It just wasn't as big.

Quandary Peak Celebration

And now for something completely different. You might recall that back in May, we celebrated the 10th anniversary of my Everest climb. To commemorate this life-changing event, my Everest team reassembled to lead a mini-expedition up one of Colorado's 14ers, Quandary Peak. Together we took over 50 people, including disabled soldiers, to the summit of a beautiful mountain. In the process, we also raised over $10,000 for No Barriers and Soldiers To The Summit!

Jeff, Ike, and I are hosting a party at the Lazy Dog Lounge in Boulder, Colorado on Thursday, August 25th. The $20 cover ($10 for kids) will go to charity. We will have entertainment before the show, tales of adventure, and a live auction of memorabilia from the show. Plus special guests!

No Barriers Summit Major Success!

The 2011 No Barriers Summit was definitely our best yet! It had a big impact on everyone who attended. We had so many great participants who took advantage of their own adversities propelled themselves forward to new heights.

Expedition Impossible Premier Party

Last Thursday, Jeff Evans and I met up with 200+ friends at the Lazy Dog sports bar on the Pearl Street Mall in Boulder to watch the premier of Team No Limits and Expedition Impossible. It was a GREAT time but I must admit it was so noisy that I missed most of the show and had to watch it the next day.
